Recap and Review
*Warning Contains Spoilers*
This episode makes me anxious. I know everything for “S.H.I.E.L.D.” will change. I’ve had the privilege of seeing “Captain America: The Winter Solider,” so whatever is going to happen in this hour is going to be big.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” doesn’t disappoint. In “Turn, Turn, Turn,” Coulson has to deal with May. She honestly has no idea what’s going on, other than she’s reporting to Fury on Coulson’s mental state. While that truth has terminal consequences on their friendship by the end of the episode, Coulson still considers her an ally.
While May comes clean to Coulson, we discover she basically cherry-picks the team. I think May is the Maria Hill counterpart on the show. She’s an agent who Fury can rely on and trust. However, May isn’t in the inner circle on his death.
The craziness begins when S.H.I.E.L.D. is destroyed and Hydra (a secret organization thought to be defeated) is revealed. Hydra agents are coming out of the wood work and the few good S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are left wondering whom can they trust?
The one person I don’t think we can trust makes me feel incredibly guilty. Victoria Hand seems to be the source of all the bad for Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team, but in the end she’s the person who seems to be the most honest. I hate how her story progresses tonight. I couldn’t believe she’s killed. Worse yet, how she’s killed.
As Hydra agents reveal themselves, Garrett is backed into a corner and makes a stupid mistake, admitting something he isn’t supposed to. Garrett is Hydra. Ward wants to make him pay, be the one to turn the key. That should send up the red flags, but I’m blindsided when Ward pulls the gun, killing Hand and her good S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and leaving Ward and Garrett hailing Hydra. This can only lead to something bad. I have hope Ward is playing double team or something. Being on a mission to infiltrate and feed information back to someone.
Our core agents are left intact. Coulson, May, Skye, Fitz and Simmons are good, safe and left standing to pick up the pieces. The rest of the agents are either being caged, on the run, or proudly announcing their Hydra affiliation. However, Ward is compromised, and Coulson doesn’t know. I worry about how this will play out for our agents. This is an incredible hour of TV. The episode is intense and wonderful.
I’m watching, are you?
